Help me out here /games/. Do you lads know of any games that explore African politics and history? I've started playing FC2 for the first time recently and I'm finding that I quite like that it explores the lingering effects of colonialism and foreign interference in Africa. I realize this is an extremely specific niche but I'm curious if there are other properties out there that are like this.

I'd hardly call V a specifically "anti-soviet" game. It's true that you fight Soviet soldiers at one point, but you also fight US marines in "Ground Zero" (who are explicitly portrayed as evil torturers) as well as Afrikaaner mercenaries who are probably connected to the National Party regime in South Africa (who were supported by America for a long time and Reagan wanted to keep doing so despite mounting international outcry).


RE5 is kind of bad unfortunately, it's more or less a retread of RE4 (all the same plot beats and encounters) but with Africans instead of Spaniards (who speak Mexican Spanish in what's implied to be rural Galicia, for some reason).


In Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn if you choose the Nod faction all the campaign is set in Africa.


RE5 is a miserable experience unless you have someone to play with too. Everything is balanced around having two people shooting so every zombie and boss is either a bullet sponge (several times worse than other RE bulletsponges) or requires a co-op trick to beat. The ai co-op partner is too stupid for either of those things.


I'm surprised none of you have mentioned Democracy 3 Africa, you can literally play as the ANC but do the good things they said they would in the constitution.

Alas, nobody else.
I'm bored and it is incredibly difficult to find new friends to play video games together. It was easier back in the day when you could find players through custom games and matchmaking…
Games I like:
>Warcraft 3 custom games
>Morrowind multiplayer
>LOTR Battle for Middle Earth II
>Stronghold series
>SCP Secret Laboratory
>COD World at War (nazi zombies)
>Ages of Empire
>zoo tycoon
>TES Oblivion

I only play solo games fam.


You aren't missing out on much.


Missing out on much?
There must be something worthwhile to do with other people… but I have tried a few games on gameranger.
OP is mostly about games that are good for socializing, like MMOs or matchmaking, but finding about what genre and games are good for it.


Then go ahead and try it, I have based my opinion over experiences in a very large timeframe. Most of it just very shallow, you are much better off actually going outside and doing something with people.

NOD OR GDI? Scrin/third way acelerationism doesn't count, neither TW4.

Personally I play NOD because I feel powerful and at the same time guided by the "people's" Messiah, fighting against a standard NATO org, not matters the cruel reality of the tiberium poisoning, the decay of the planet, the mixture of totalitarian corporation-state-church of NOD or the experiments with humans.

One vision, one purpose.

C&C series is the better game series tbh. Red Alert was just red scare: the game.


>especially when it is obvious that Kane has plans of his own
Communism. Lenin -> Yuri -> Kain, simple as


Kane is obviously an analogue to Cain. What with the Marked of Kane/Cain and the fact that he can't die. Even the Scrin can tell he is not human.


I love how they were building up the mystery of who he was and his final goal before they just threw in the towel for C&C 4 and he took a portal to some ayylien planet and left Earth. Like what the fuck you could have done that decades ago.


I think the original plan was Kane returning to somewhere alien. I read about dev notes that said that the Tacitus was from an alien world that fought the Scrin, which is why Kane had so much affinity with it. Too bad the new people fucked it up. Kinda sad tbh.

Is it true the devs of this are actually critiquing venezeulan "socialism"? They're from there so I wouldn't be surprised.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


and it's supposed to be a worker cooperative, they might even be all socialists.


I think one of the devs on their personal tumblr mentioned in passing that one of the reasons behind making it was to escape Venezuela or whatever. That said, nothing on their blog really even remotely approaches the usual levels of gusano dumbassery you'd see elsewhere regarding the topic, so..


Pretty much. The blog post (from what I remember) was pretty much "We have to get out of this country it's going to shit" and that was all.


Lots of money goes into bashing the Venezuelan government and it's widely popular and encouraged.


Vuvuzela is a trotskist hellscape so it makes sense.

There is a grand total of 3 post-ww2 CoD games that aren't glowie and out of them 2 are extremely sci-fi. The games have almost always been like this but I'll probably give it a torrent and play the campaign because despite the retarded politics the actual mechanics and melodrama of the campaigns are a guilty pleasure of mine. There are barely any other studios that can actually make a decent linear campaign with high production values.


this is allready way more realistic

You have my attention.


Every CoD MW update is comically large but people keep playing it


And Battle.net is so comically shit it takes a day to download each update even on a fibre connection

Secret societies and global elite crime rings

Is this game based and redpilled?

Tbh I don't think any of the new Hitmans ever get as kino of a level as the theater mission in Blood Money.


have you played them? Hokkaido is just top kino for me


ngl, this new level looks kino af



I've always loved these games, nearly every target is some rich scum bucket. The newest ones seem to be going somewhere pretty cool with the story but time will tell.


I've spent so much time on that level, I just love everything about it and destroying the heart has to be one of my favourite kills in the series.

Sup Saint /games/, what's your guys take on the zombies mode in the cod series? Good, bad, murdered?

How do you guys think they're going to handle it in bo5?
It's probably going to be BO3 again but still you never 100% know

How do the other non zombie Co op modes stack compared to it?
7 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Yep. It has its own steam workshop full of custom maps with custom weapons and mechanics too




BO3 is a weirdly experimental game for a CoD from the co-op campaign story being insane because they only ever imply whats actually happening (unless you are very fast at screenshotting scrolling loading text) to letting people heavily mod zombies.
I don't know how treyarch managed to get actiblizzard to go as nuts as they did.


Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if ActiBlizzard tried to monetise mods Bethesda style though, hell I wouldn't be surprised if it actually does happen at some point


A very important period of my life was marked by playing with my friends WaW Zombies in lan parties (then, hamachi); specially all the mods.

thoughts on pic related?


Damn, Amano is really phoning it in with that picture. I guess even greats have weaknesses.


Amano was the best thing to come out of that franchise. Looking at his art for the games is much more enjoyable, cathartic, fantastical and mysterious than actually playing and following them.


I just picked the first one I saw and yeah it's not great
this one is a little better


fuck didn't post


I give up

>Downloads and guides on how to start

>What is BMS?

BMS (Be-Music Source) is a file format for rhythm games, devised by Urao Yane in 1998. The format was originally developed as a format specific for a simulator of the game Beatmania by KONAMI, and currently the term BMS is widely used to describe the whole Beatmania simulating game system.

>Why should I care?

1) It's the best fucking rhythm game out there. All the songs available are made specifically for the game and keynoted, so when you press a button, the sound actually plays unlike games like Osu! or other Mania games.
2) There's an insane amount of content. The "game" has been going around for over 20 years, with artists famous in other rhythm games getting their start in this format. While the skill ceiling is baffling, there's just as much content available for beginners and intermediate players as well.
3) It is a picture of what post-capitalist gaming could look like. Everything is made and distributed entirely for free, with events like "The BMS of Fighters" encouraging collaboration and cooperation between artists. There are very, very, very few concessions made in the name of capitalism, the game can be brutally hard or esoteric in song design without worry of having to appeal to a market. While controllers for the game do exist, if you want to play with keyboard, you'll probably have an easier time than if you blew $200 on a Beatmania con.

>What are some examples of gameplay?

(Note: because there are multiple clients to play these songs on, and skins are fully customizable, looks may vary from video to video)

Never understood the appeal of rhythm games. To me they seem like the most bland examples of rote memorization imaginable. Something that's rightfully slammed in any other game genre.


I used to play a lot of Jubeat on a legit arcade and some Osu! and it makes me want to get back into ryhtm games. Rythm games, like a lot of arcade games, seem to be seized back from devs a lot (like custom controllers, there are a lot of tutorials on how to make your own Jubeat launchpad) in the West at least, where those games are rare.

It's like learning an instrument but for weebs.


I feel like they're only good if you have to exercise during them ala Beat Saber or DDR. Then it's actually a test of physical skill rather than button pressing.
